Abstract: 

Nuclear power plants have existed for around 60 years. Even now, following the Fukushima Daiichi Plant meltdown, they continue to be constructed; leading to the possibility of further nuclear calamity. In the event of a disaster, the resulting nuclear fallout zone can span distances of more than 30 km; but what happens to the facilities that are lucky enough to reach the end of their lifespan? What will become of all the aged nuclear facilities? As the world begins to understand the importance of looking towards renewable energy sources, there are still those that cling to the idea that nuclear energy is the answer, even here in Canada.

How can decommissioned nuclear power plants provide opportunities for renewable growth?
